Eoin Gill opened Annaduff’s account after 8 minutes but Kiltubrid continued to have the better of the opening exchanges and led by 1:4 to 2 points after twenty minutes. Sean Duignan and Frank Mc added first half points to leave us trailing 1:6 to 5 at the interval. Annaduff stepped up a gear in the second half and played with more pace and intensity. Our defence held Kiltubrid to just two points over the closing half hour while points from Alan, Frank, Gavin, Eoin, Kenny and Sean moved the Annaduff return to 14 points.

With 10 minutes gone and Annaduff trailing by three, Adam O Hagan collected the ball in his own half, charged up the field at pace and blasted the ball to the back of the net to level the match. Conor Reynolds then gave Annaduff the lead but the Drumshanbo men continued to point from distance and added a goal after 20 minutes, by half time the margin was 5 points in favour of Allen Gaels. Like our D2 performance, our backs shut up shop in the second half and for 28 minutes conceded two points while Alan and Frank added 7 to tie the game with two minutes remaining.

We came out on top in the first of our two weekend encounters with the neighbours in Annaduff on Saturday. This was an even contest for much of the game and the sides were level with one minute remaining. St Marys opened the scoring and led by three before Sean McNabola opened the Annaduff account. St Marys registered two more points before Sean hit the back of the net for the first of his two goals, three points the margin at half time. An intense second half opened with 4 more points from Sean’s boot, one in particular to be savoured to a single St Marys over which brought the sides level with 20 minutes remaining. A frantic and entertaining final 19 minutes featured Ray Cox rattling the onion bag, and 3 more Annaduff points from Ray and Joe, all canceled out by St Marys scores.
In the 59th Minute Sean Mc sent in a wickedly curling long range free which evaded the Carrick keeper to give Annaduff the game.
